Our brewers created Vunderbar! with both feet grounded in tradition, focusing on authentic German pilsner malt and spicy Czech Saaz hops. The result just might get you to shimmy into your favorite lederhosen, bust into a quick schuhplattler and loudly proclaim, Das ist Vunderbar! Formerly known as Shortbatch #11

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2016 I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours golden with a white head and some lacing. The aroma is lemon and biscuit. The taste is cracker, lemon, and honey. It?s crisp and dry. This is a pretty good one.

Taster pour from keg at NH Brew Fest. Appearance is clear, pale yellow (urine-like) with minimal sparkle, fizzy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is mild, crackers and yeast. Taste is as aroma. Palate is medium bodied with slippery texture, average carbonation with cracker and yeast crisp finish. Overall, light and refreshing. Not too much to it, but nothing objectionable.

tmoreau (4221) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2016
On tap at this years Chicago Beer Society picnic, self served to plastic showing a lightly hazed, golden hue, a presentable layer of white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was soft grain, lightly floral, hints of grass, greenery, & lemon, with a typical but distinctive pils/lager scent. Light to medium bodied, with good carbonation, the taste added low bitterness, just a touch of tartness & tanginess that was slightly disconcerting, but a clean & crisp finish. A decent rendition of the style.

Bulk_Carrier (5843) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Poured into a pilsener glass, the appearance was a soft hazy burnt yellow with a sly transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace to fill a one finger white foamy rocky head that sustained for a good minute. Delicate lace clung nicely. The aroma starts off with some honey-ed sweet biscuits rolling into some sweet grassy notes. The flavor takes the previously mentioned aromas to boot and slide into the aftertaste with a sweet wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a crisp sweet semi-refreshing sessionability about it. Carbonation rides light in the feel. Semi-sticky smooth to the touch on my tongue. Overall, nice German pilsener, pass me some bratwurst while I put on my lederhosen and want more of this. Id have definitely have again.

Can. Hazy light gold with a tall white head. The aroma is lightly sweet and spicy. The flavor balances light bitterness with just enough sweetness. Lightly bitter finish.
